Feature request

This is obviously the wrong place to place a feature request to the giantly massive company that is Google, but here it is anyway. I wish there was an uninstall feature int he online Android market. It would be so nice to uninstall and manage apps from a nice cozy web browser.

Android Market

I'm finally getting around to taking advantage of the android market. There's something very satisfying about installing an app from the market and having it show up on your phone. The layout for google books in the market is also very nice. I'm now loaded up with a bunch of philosophy books that I'll probably read the first 10 pages of each.

In other app news, My Tracks has officially replaced Runkeeper for tracking my running/cycling. Thus continues the googlification of my life and data.

GUI choices

Prior to receiving the cr-48 my wm of choice in Linux was almost always a tiling manager. Now I'm not so sure. I love the simplicity and speed of tiling wm's, but there is something to be said for wm's that just look cool. With lots of keyboard shortcuts a floating, eye-candy filled wm could be almost as fast as a tiler while still giving me a generous "wow factor." The search begins...

I've never used gnome, maybe it's time for a try.

Tonido frustrations

Tonido is working well on the server, but for some reason the automatic start up isn't quite reliable. I started messing with it and messed it up further. So a quick rebuild of the package fixed it, but I'm still starting it by hand (or remote ssh hand). I think I'm going to have to get into KDE's auto start to get it working. Also, it looks like OSD-lyrics broke with the latest upgrade of libnotify on arch so karaoke is down right now.
